Today is my birthday. I guess we still celebrate in our 50’s, right? My birthday didn’t stop me firing up the computer and Keurig at 7.30am and getting in some writing at the quietest part of my day. Guess it’s in my DNA.
I’m a lucky man. Blessed with a wonderful family, an inspiring job and (healing knee aside) good health. But, if you have a few minutes to to give me a gift, and it’s your time not money I want, here is how you can help me get the publishing contract I am chasing.
As you know, Inkitt, a publisher, has taken an interest in my latest manuscript – an edgy magical realism novel. They are offering free downloadable copies and I request that you take a minute to click into the website and download a copy today.
Kingfisher: Slave To Honor – Free Novel by Alon Shalev
They have a complex set of algorithms that will help them decide whether to sign me which includes how it takes you to read the novel and they measure what pages you are on. If you get through the book, then a review is critical. Please be honest – I never want someone to write something they don’t believe.
Thank you for your support. This is a very exciting opportunity for me and a publishing contract would make a mighty fine birthday gift!
The idea of helping struggling artists resonate more these days, so if you still have a bit of time, please help another author realize his/her dreams:

I loved the new book and anxiously await the next one. Even though I read it on Inkitt, I will be purchasing a copy when you get published because like it that much! HAPPY BIRTHDAY to one of my favorite authors! From a fan in her 50s 🙂
Thank you, Melia. You made my day!
If it’s not too much trouble, could you go to Inkitt and leave a short review. It would be really helpful.
Thank you again,

Hey happy birthday, hope you had a good one! I went to download last week when I received your email…I got a little confused, not sure I actually downloaded…however, it’s something that needs to be read on my computer, which is not an optimum way for me to read..however, again, I will do my best to help you out. Good luck with the book and the publishing!!
Really appreciate your support, June. If you do read or skim through, please leave a review afterwards.
